* TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard: Pooh-Bah is: Master of the Rolls, Master of the Buckhounds, Groom of the Backstairs, First Lord of the Treasury, Solicitor, Lord Chamberlain, Attorney-General, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Privy Purse, Lord Chief Justice, Leader of the Opposition, Paymaster-General, Lord High Auditor, Archbishop of Titipu, First Commissioner of Police, Private Secretary, Groom of the Second Floor Front, Lord Mayor and Judge Ordinary. Indeed the only position in city government he does not hold is that of Lord High Executioner; his shorter title is Lord High Everything Else. Modern productions like to add some titles to introduce more contemporary humour. Examples would be Director of Homeland Security or Husband of Creator/ElizabethTaylor.

** Or, more likely, for the title of "Daughter-in-Law Elect of the Mikado", and eventually Queen. From her behavior in the second act, it is clear that she would pattern her reign after the Queen of Hearts from ''[[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Alice in Wonderland]]'' ("[[OffWithHisHead off with their heads]]!"), so the inhabitants of Titipu could [[spoiler: heave a sigh of relief that she didn't get her wish]].

One of the most famous, if not ''the most-famous'' work by Creator/GilbertAndSullivan, '''''The Mikado, or, the Town of Titipu''''' opened in 1885. The story of its conception was dramatized in the 1999 film ''Film/TopsyTurvy''.
